Forum on coastal development in Jakarta
A forum was held in Jakarta on 1 and 2 September for the National Capital Integrated Coastal Development (NCICD) project. On the agenda were the social and environmental issues arising from different proposals in the NCICD. The programme included a site visit to a fishing harbour. The NCEA contributed by giving a presentation on the added value of SEA. Workshop participants jointly observed that an SEA process is needed for the NCICD, and that it should take into account the bigger picture of developments in the wider area.
